In still-rare (if minor) legitimate Episode IX news, John Boyega revealed that he’s growing out his hair for the film, hinting at the time jump most of us are expecting from the film. “The first step is growing out my hair so you can wait for the trailer to see why,” he told Yahoo. Sounds like Finn is getting a new look! (You can check out Boyega’s current hairstyle on his Instagram.)
The Last Jedi is the only episodic Star Wars film that did not begin with a significant time jump from its predecessor.
Director J.J. Abrams has said Episode IX will start filming at the end of July.
